Summary

Secrets broke her heart...and have now come back from the grave to haunt her.

A new series from NYT and USAT best-selling author, Michelle M. Pillow!

Lorna Addams’ life is not turning out like she expected. After a very public embarrassment, she finds it difficult to trust her judgment when it comes to new friendships and dating. She might be willing to give love a second chance when she meets the attractive William Warrick, if only she could come to terms with what her husband did to her and leave it in the past.

How is a humiliated empty nest widow supposed to move on with her life? It’s not like she can develop a sixth sense, séance her ex back, force him to tell her why and give her closure. Or can she?

Compelling

Lorna Addams had a good life. A husband and almost grown children.
Then her husband dies. At the funeral she discovers her “husband” was a bigamist. Then his wife takes legal action leaving Lorna with no money or home.

With her children settled in college, she makes a new life alone.

In Freewild Cove, she hopes to start again without the baggage of her previous humiliation.

A job managing and living at the local theatre brings new friends. Her boss and landlady, Heather introduces her to Vivien Stone. So starts a friendship of forty something women which rapidly becomes something more.

On the same night, they each find a ring in their homes. Together, those rings combine to strengthen the latent psychic powers that each possesses.

A seance leads Lorna to summon her “husband” to explain his betrayal. The outcome is not what any of them expect!

Excellent story combining midlife rediscovery, friendship and the paranormal.
Compelling first in a fascinating series.

Good narration.

Great start to a new series.

I enjoyed this audiobook. The narration was great and the story flowed smoothly. We have an older couple (40's) with baggage. When Lorna moves to Freewell Cove she's hoping to start over without her past hanging over her head. Secrets destroyed her marriage and with her children gone from home she's on her own for the first time in years. When she meets Heather and Vivian, she finds her new family. The women have been drawn together by magic and they'll have to discover their new strengths. When William comes into her life, she'll also have to resolve the problems from her past. Series is fun with likable characters that grow and change as they learn from their mistakes and find new paths forward.

New Beginnings

This story tells how Lorna's life was irrevocably changed after she became a widow at 41. She never saw it coming, her life was happy she and her husband of twenty years had 3 grown-up kids who were all attending college Nicholas was the oldest then there were the twins Jenifer and Jacob. But at the Funeral she learned something that would affect her deeply.....

This story was so well written, it deals with loss and starting over, learning to trust your judgement and finding friendship and love in your 40s. There is so much more I could say but that would spoil a really wonderful story, I recommend downloading this and listening to it yourself.

The narration of this book by Rebecca Cook is excellent, she brought the story to life for me.

Great new series!!!!

This audiobook mainly revolves around Lorna but it is so much more! Yes, she had a rough start in the very beginning BUT that made her stronger & who she is during her "midlife."
SPOILERS AHEAD:
Fast forward 3 years from the beginning & she lands in Freewild Cove. It changes her life forever, in a very good way. She becomes besties with Heather & Vivian. Vivian is a hoot by the way. She even has some steamy bits with William, Heather's brother. The ladies each find the same type of object that binds them in a way plus Heather & William have a family secret that comes out. Heather embraces it but William completely denies it until...............
This audiobook so much to offer. Intrigue, humor, magic, etc. A definite must!

Amazing Suspenseful Story!

This is the first book in the Order of Magic Series, a Paranormal Romance Women's Fiction Novel. Wow! I loved it! Lorna's story is captivating! Mom of three, betrayed by her late husband, she is a wonderful character, strong, and smart. William is handsome, supportive, and caring. They share an instant attraction, and an undeniable chemistry. Vivien and Heather (William's sister) are amazing friends, and wonderful supporting characters. Lorna and her two new friends are gifted with psychic abilities. The storyline is original, intricate, and enthralling, filled with mystery, suspense, and some scary scenes. Impossible to put it down! Rebecca Cook did a wonderful job with the narration. Looking forward to listen to Third Time's a Charm, Vivien's story, the second book in the Series. If you like Paranormal Romance, and Women's Fiction, this series is definitely for you! I enjoyed it, and I HIGHLY recommend it.

Sweet, Heartwarming.....with a little magic!

I loved this story, I was not expecting this beginning which made me surprised (since I read a lot of paranormal, this is something!). I loved the pace of the book and the characters. There were deep issues faced by each of the featured female characters that made it so much more real. New love, new friends, new beginnings. Just reminds us all, that even life has its chapters and it's never too late to create a new adventure for yourself. When you realise life doesn't bind you, there is so much world out there to experience and fall in love with! Definitely looking forward to the next one in the series! Paranormal Women's Fiction are stories featuring older women. Some of the themes in this book and the series are difficult ones. These stories help shed some light on those with a little twist of hope and magic. If you enjoy paranormal and fantasy stories, these are a perfect addition to your reading list!

A Betrayal, A Second Chance and Some Magic

I received this in return for an honest review. I have been really enjoying the Fab13 PWF books and this was no exception. It had me hooked right from the very beginning - I didn’t expect the betrayal at the start and it really made me feel and connect with Lorna. I enjoyed the developing relationships between, Lorna, Heather and Vivien. Such a really lovely story where heartbreak and grief brings these three ladies together and Lorna finds herself with a second chance. Brilliant start to a new series and great narration as always by Rebecca Cook. Well worth a listen.
